West Virginia Driuoimcv.
The suggestion of the Charleston Gail
zotto that the Democratic party In
West Virginia hold no conventions this
year, nominating by popular primaries
Instead, meets with a good deal of
favor. There Is opposition, of course,
but there la also strong approval. The
aim of this plan of campaign is to avlod
coming together where there would be
opportunity for a row.
If there be no conventions there will
be tto platform adopted by the party .1
this state, and this, it Is thought, would
be a great gain. It would prevent a
row over the platform in process of
j manufacture, and the party would be
committed to nothing exfept the national
platform, which In any cose It
will have to support.
The great dread of a state convention.
is that it m.'ght be split by the silver
wetffw. Tnere might be anjruish,
olSi\ over the tariff. The Democratic
party in West Virginia never was more
torn up over policies than It is to-day,
and If is getting no better with a rapidity
that astonishes and discourages the
men who are trying to hold together
the organization.
It may be that under the peculiar circumstances
the no-conventlon Idea Is
wise. Certainly it would place the
Democratic organization where it could
do Itself the least damage. The other
side of the question is that the people do
. not take kindly to cowardice In a political
nartr any more than In an Individ
ual. No matter what reason were assigned
/or abandoning the time-honored
custom of convention*, the people
would know that the thing had been
[' done because of the wide-r.pnrt views
!"**?of'Democrats on the questions of the
day and because of the supposed Impossibility
of reconciling those differences.
To do away with the conventions
would place the Democratic party In
the Interesting attitude of having r.o
principles or polices upon which it dare
go before the people In West Virginia.
The contrast between this ostrich policy
and the eagerness of the Republicans
to hold as many conventions as
possible, would surely place the Democratic
organization in contempt of publln
Anlnl/m
There is a striking novelty in the idea
?no conventions, no principle?, no policies,
only candidates! It would be
more logical to follow up the no-convention.

majorities have not bwi wlpod out yet.
Save the trouble of all nominations for

Then the conventions will not be

the lack of them will be silenced in advance.
This plan of campaign has
merits which should pre** themselves
on the attention of those Democrats
who have entertained the no-convcntloa
Idea.

If Russia means mischief In Korea

Whether the fight could be confined to

could not be.
It may be that the match which has

will be lighted In a part of the world

Wrylcr'* JHcrcJlcM Polity*
General Weyler opens his career In
Cuba with jl series of proclamations Intended
to strike terror to the patriots
and to all who sympathise with them.
He sweeps away all ?olvll proceedure
and sots up a high court of the sword
He proclaims his right to do what he
pleases to whom he pleases, and his intentlon
of exercising his right without
appeal and without mercy.
He may succeed In frightening noncombatants
who sympathise with the
patriots, but his proclamations, nery as
they are, will not frighten the men In
the field. They are already, risking
their Uvea to make themsolves a country.
Weyler cannot do more than take
their Uvea from them.
To make headway against the armed
Cubans. Weyler will have to whip
them. They are aware that it Is hla Intention
to leave nothing undone to accomplish
their annihilation. But they,
too, have a purpose; which Is to tight
while they have arms and ammunition
to fight with. Nothing is changed by
Wcyler's proclamations except the
spirit in which the war is to be waged
on the Spanish side.
Unless Weyler can catch the Cubans
In the open it Is difficult to see how he
i can make more headway against them
than Campos made. If Gomes had consented
to a pitched battle Campos
would probably have defeated him.
The success of Weylcr's plan turns on
the probability of getting the Cuban
commander where he cannot strike and
run and must stand a battle.
While he is trying to bring this about
the Cuban climate will go on fertilizing
the Cuban soil with Spanish bones.
Recognition by the United States of
Cuban belligerency would give Weyler
something new to think about and
would double-shot every Cuban gun
and nerve every Cuban arm for a bolder
execution with the deadly maohete.

ffew York and the Pmldrntf.
There are many Republicans In New
York who do not fall In with the Morton
idea. The governor of that great
state in an admirable man who has
served well In the high place* to which
he has been called, but there are other
and stronger preferences In his state.
There is a large body of Republicans
who think that Mr. Piatt Is working the
Morton boom with more regard to
himself than to Governor Morton. So
It comes about that some of the beat
Republicans of New York city have set
on foot a movement which means a
contesting delegation at St Louis.
Even more interesting news comes
from the western part of the state. The
Buffalo Commercial requested 160 representative
Republicans to express
their flrst and seoond choice. There
were 121 responses giving flrst choice as
follows: McKlnley 72, Reed 16, Morton
12, Allison 5, non-committal 1C. The Instructive
part Is not so much that McKlnley
has more than twice as many as
all the rest put together, but that the
"favorite son" Idea has made a favorable
Impression on so few. For second
choice McKlnley heads the list with 21
and Reed Is ahead of Morton.
The Buffalo Commercial submits the
names to the people who know them
and says that they will be recognized as
the names of representative men. It
may, of course, be that the sentiment
thus expressed will not be reflected by
the delegates to the convention, but it
Is significant that it exists and Is cheerfully
made public.
A Washington correspondent of the
Pittsburgh Times says the Impression
of the beat Informed at the capital Is
that after the skirmishing In the St.
Louis convention the fight will narrow
down to a contest between McKlnley
nnd Allison. If so there will be no bad
meaiciiM.* lor lur nctiuuuuiiia w?c.
McKlnley and Allison are both equipped
for the presidency. The country
would have great confidence In either
of them. W?t Virginia'will give her
electoral vote to the nominee.
A Mfrloni Condition.
In the replies to the Charleston Gazette's
supination that the Democrats
hold no conventions In West Virginia
this year, nominating by primaries Instead.
a good deal In said about getting
rid of the ring rule which has brought
the West Virginia Democracy to Its
present demoralised condition.
ft In tnio that rlni? ritlo him hnrl mtmh

side of great public questions ha* hod
more to do with It. For this the national
Democracy Is responsible.
The West Virginia Democracy has
been ripped up by following that
bad leadership. The party all
over the country Is nflllcted with the
same disease, which resembles galloping
consumption.

to be hoped that the Ohio senator Is
right. While the tnrlff bill would help

THAT OLD VIOLIN
???? '
Which J?Uy Figure la the Writ Virginia
Campaign thla Year?Au Old Story Reproduced.
T>he following cxtraot from an
article wMoh appeared in the Pittsburgh
Dispatch early lant summer is of
especial Interest Just now and well |
worth repeating:
"Wes," or George Wesley Atkinson
came up 'to Pittsburgh from Wheeling
for a "brief visit. Not to know the excongressman
argues oneself, if a West
Vlrgln+an. unknown. Mr. Atkinson Is
known in every county in -he state.
Wihen he is among the river bottoms
near FVarkoroburg he can tell a ripe
watermelon by merely looking at it,
Just as well as the farmer whose agricultural
methods he is praising. He
doesn't need to ^fJiump" the fruit. He
knows something of the mnking of
nails and iron und steel, a useful accomplishment
for a politician domiciled
in Wheeling. Up in ?ho "I'anhandle"
he can tell the probable price
tfont his constituents' wool will bring
1,|?? tiw If fhrsuttph flnifura.
In the mountains, however, his wellknown
principles relieve hlco from the
necessity of passing Judgment
on the Qualities of mountain whiskey. |
"How about the story that you opened
United States court at Clarksburg
with a violin solo?" 1 asked Mr. Atkinson.
"There was a violin," he replied, but
I dkln't open court wKh it. I'll tell
you about It. One morning at Clarksburg.
Ju.it before court opened. I was
in the office of the United States marital,
Lafe Garden of Wheeling. A box
had just come by express, and when
the marshal opened It he found it contained
a violin. I took up the instrument.
<unod It, and then played an air.
Lafe, who is a good player, also tried |
a tune, OJ?d then I started In on the
'Arkansas Traveler.' By this time a big
crowd had gathered, and while I was
sawing away I heard a voice exclaim: <
" 'Well, I'll b? switched.'
"I turned around and whom should !
I see but Nathan Goff, the United
Stages Judge.
" 'Why, Wcs,' he said, 'I didn't knew
you could play the llddle.'
" 'But 1 can. Nate,' 1 replied. *1
learned it twenty-live years ago.'
" 'Well, well,' the Judge retorted.
I've known you for twenty years, and I
never knew you were ornery enough
to play the Addle.'
Then I played another tune, and Nate
said it wm a pretty fuir execution.
Now, as soon as I played the fiddle I
knew K was a good one, and I offered
I^fe a hundred for it. He refused,
and I offered him my flddle, which I
bought for 150 from JoV Cromer, who
used to lead tihe Opera House orchestra
In Wheeling, and who. I believe, Is now
In Pittsburgh, and *50 to boot. But
Lafe refused.
"I'll tell you what I'll do, Wes." he
said, "I'll give you tha-l fiddle if you
ever become governor of West Virginla.
That's a promise."
"And all his deputies, who, of course,
are Democratic; laughed and said: "It's
a safe promise. Marsha2, West Vlrglnfci
will never have a Republican governor.'
"But I am going to have that fiddle,
concluded Mr. Atkinson, "even under
the conditions set by Lafe.'
Then Mr. Atkinson told the story
of the violin V.self. It was a present
to Marshal Garden by one of the deputies.
"Rattlesnake P^te" Harper. P*>te
was out Jn the wilds of Pendleton
county when he cume across an old
farmer, whose aneeniors had lived in
New England. Before going to bed
one night tCie old fellow took the Middle
from its tfhelf on the wall and reeled
off a tune. He charmed the "Rattlesnake."
Ihe lamer can play the flddle
a little himself, and he recognlxrd the
Inst-rumen* as an old one. None of the
modern make, he knew, could have t2in*.
depth of tone and sweetness of sound.
T<ho old man showed papers, yellow
with n*re, which proved tfcat the violin
was at Icost 130 years old, and hod descended
from one to another generation
of his family, and <vid at last
landed high up In Pendleton county.
Rattlesnake Pete tvut?'rd the fiddle,
and, aa he has clncc said, "wanted it
bad." Ter<ativdy he tried the old man
with an offer of 115.
To his surprlw, the farmer placed
the violin In his hands, wWi the remark:
"She's yours, etranffer, Fork
over the money."
'Hie old ft it! 3k? has ent?r??d on a new
era in Its hUtory. Perhaps It once
lay neglected in some New England
garm. Its owner fearful of evoking
lt? strains, lef?' some nosing selectman

Wlint Krnnlor Klklna Undertook ?i>(l
Wl??t He Accomplished-A Public Service.
Philadelphia Press: Senator ElkJns,
of West Virginia, is said to
be well pleased with the result of
the Bale of government bonds to the
public under competition. He may well
be, for to him more than any other is
due the abrogation of the plan of the
treasury department to moke another
syndicate sale or a private oontract
with Mr. Plerpont Morgan. By the
breaking off of that arongernent, which
the government was compelled to do
under the presure which found tangiblo
expression In Mr. Elklns' resolution,
the United States treasury saved
$7,000,000.
On December .11 last Mr. Elkins introduced
Into the senate a resolution
declaring it to be the sense of the senate
"that hereafter no bonds of the
United States shall be sold at private
sale, or under private contract, and In
case of the sale of bonds under existing
laws the same shall be made only after
due advertisement of such sal* and
proposals Invited, and then only to the
highest bidder." Subsequently Mr. Elklns
made this a Joint resolution, with
some slight changes in phraseology,
and In this shapelt is stillpcndlng. Senator
Hill, acting in behalf of the administration.
apparently objected to
the Immediate consideration of what he
termed "this most extraordinary resolution."
At the next meeting of the
senate. Senator Hill again objectc-d to
the resolution being taken up. but he
was overruled by the senate, which
voted to take up Mjk Elk Ins' resolution
by a vote of fortnight to six. This
looked bad for the syndicate's disposition
of bonds, but Senator Hill was not
discouraged; he spent the rest of the
day in speaking against the resolution.
trying to show that Secretary Carlisle's
method of disposing of bonds was
the same as that resorted to long before
by John Sherman. The Ohio senator
refuted this on the Bpot, but the
discussion ?wore away the ufternoon
and at 5:30. Friday. January 3. by a
uuiv uiujuiii) ui uiic, uir BL'iiair vuicu
to adjourn, without coming to a final
vote on the resolution.
But the warn in fir wa* tieeded. The
vote of forty-eight to six by which the
opposition to taking up the resolution
was snowed under must have seemed
portentous to President Cleveland and
Secretary Carlisle. Before the senate
could meet again the administration
acknowledged Its sense of the wisdom
of the Elkins resolution by pnacticaliy
throwing overboard the syndicate and
asking from the public subscriptions
under seal tor the proposed issue of
$100,000,000 4 per cent bonds. The answer
came in subscriptions for more
than five times that amount, and at a
rate so much better than 104'i, which
the syndicate tendered, that 17,000,000
was waved to the treasury that would
otherwise have been divided among the
members of the syndicate.
This did Senator Stephen B. Elkins
accomplish by his timely resolution,
presented, pressed and approved in the
senate at a time when the secretary of
the trs-nsury had his pen in hand to
sign the contract. His "most extraordinary
resolution," as Senator Hill
characterized it. had the effect by its
lnrtrwluction and discussion to prevent
thcuodxtrinlstration making a second
time a "most extraordinary" and pernlolous
contract with the Morgan syndicate
for the undue enrichment of its
numbers at the expense of a bankrupt
national treasury. _
